Red Wings willing to trade No. 6 pick in NHL Draft: report | NHL.com

“I’ve started to talk to some teams about a lot,” Holland said. “As you work your way toward Dallas at the draft, draft movement possibilities, I think at this stage in the game, everybody is kicking tires as to what might be out there.”

Detroit is looking for a defenseman or a center, The Athletic said. Some of the players who could be available in the 6-10 range, according to the NHL.com mock draft, are defensemen Adam Boqvist, Evan Bouchard, Noah Dobson and Quintin Hughes, and centers Barrett Hayton and Jesperi Kotkaniemi.

The other day Khan(!) mentions Kotkaniemi as a player the Red Wings are possibly targeting. Now, there’s a report saying that Ken Holland would trade down? Where there’s smoke there’s fire, right? Time to pre-order your #31 Kotkaniemi jersey.
